The Phlebotomy Diploma, developed by Phlebotomy Training Services is the most advanced course available in phlebotomy. It was designed and developed for those who not only want to pursue a career in phlebotomy, but to also master their craft and provide the best care possible for anyone they are taking blood from.

There are 3 levels of the course: the award, the certificate and finally the diploma, with each level building on the last. This is an advanced course at the end of which the learner will be provided with a nationally recognised and will be accredited up to the equivalent NVQ Level 3.

We have recently found out that anybody looking to pursue the Diploma in Phlebotomy may be able to apply for funding to help them afford it and develop their career.

The loan is from the government’s Professional and Career Development Loans. If you meet the criteria then you can apply for a loan with a value of between £300 and £10,000. These loans are typically given at a reduced interest rate and the government pays the interest while you are undertaking the course.

As mentioned, there is certain eligibility criteria, which includes:

  • You have to be 18 or over
  • You have to be a British citizen
  • You have been living in the UK for at least 3 years before your course starts
  • You have to plan to work in the UK, European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) after the course is completed

This scheme ends in January 2019, therefore you have to act quickly if you would like to take advantage of this generous offer and work toward getting your diploma in Phlebotomy.
